Reggie Bush

Post  Pizan on Wed May 11, 2011 2:24 am

Its looks very likely that Reggie will be on his way out of New Orleans.

If a new deal is reached and Bradshaw becomes a Free Agent I'd like to see us replace him with a talent like Reggie Bush.


Thoughts?

I would be ok with Reggie Bush, but it does depend on how much.

It is likely Bush will likely get more money than Bradshaw, and probably around what DeAngelo Williams will get.

It is strongly looking like Bush is on the way out in new orleans, he would be a nice fit here.

I do see Bush as more of the change of pace/3rd down back; we did get a guy like that in Scott, but obviously Bush is a quality playmaker.

If Bush wants out of New Orleans, he can get out easily
Posted by Mike Florio on May 10, 2011, 11:11 PM EDT

As Rosenthal was writing his post today regarding the connection between Reggie Bush’s most recent social media session and his eventual departure from the Saints, yours truly was making the case during PFT Live for the conclusion that Bush wants out. (Rosenthal claims that his Internet connection prevented him from watching today’s PFT Live. We believe that, but only if he means he chose not to use his Internet connection to access today’s PFT Live.)

If Bush wants out, he doesn’t have to do much to make it happen. Indeed, he simply needs to do nothing at all.

With an $11.8 million salary that becomes guaranteed as of Week One (if the rules relating to termination pay apply in 2011) — or sooner if he suffers a season-ending injury during post-lockout workouts — the Saints will want to push Bush’s situation to a resolution sooner rather than later. The choices are simple; cut him or trade him. And since no other team will want to inherit a one-year, $11.8 million contract for a glorified third-down tailback and punt returner, no trade can happen without Bush agreeing to a new deal. So if he simply refuses to redo his deal, he won’t be traded.

As mentioned during PFT Live, I’m intrigued by the possibility of Bush joining the Rams, where he would add sizzle to the franchise and provide much-needed relief for workhorse Steven Jackson. Other intriguing possibilities include the Dolphins, Steelers, Colts, Chargers, Giants, Redskins, Bears, Packers, and Vikings. We would have added the Seahawks to the list, but coach Pete Carroll’s failure to defend Bush last year when the USC situation hit the fan could be an impediment — along with the perception that Seahawks players don’t really register on the national radar screen.

Either way, if Bush has decided he wants out of New Orleans, he doesn’t have to say or do anything to make it happen. He merely needs to do nothing.

Sure, Reggie Bush would be a nice talent but imo not likely.
Too much money that the Giants wouldn't be willing to spend. Somebody will though.
Just a hunch that he's probably not a team guy neither after the comments after the draft.

It depends on Bradshaw, if he isn't back we will likely need another RB. Bush's value will be a lot lower than he is currently getting, I guess he would get around the same ballpark as Bradshaw.

I would have thought Bush is a long shot, but considering what he could add to our offense could be a possibility.

that much is true. His presence alone would be a nice asset.

for starters you would want to be real carefull how you blitz, Bush could really make you pay.

Bush is the kind of guy who could give us the kind of production we used to get from Tiki in the passing game (around 50 receptions/ 500 yards). That is probably the biggest factor we have missed since Tiki's retirement.

That will open things up even more for the passing game and also give Jacobs more options.

The more I think about it, the more I really like the idea to be honest.
